SHELFIES: J.F.R. Coates of Jaffa Books

by Bill Kieffer            

Jaffa Books is an independent publisher/retailer of fiction based in Brisbane, Australia. They have a lot of genres, but I know them mainly as a Furry publisher. But that might be because J.F.R Coates and I both belong to the Furry Writer’s Guild. Plus, Jaffa Books will be publishing Bill Kieffer’s collection of furry noir crime stories in the next few months: Cold Blood: Fatal Fables.
